Approach & Philosophy

To some extent my philosophy is simple. I want to help you feel better. I believe there is an innate pull towards change and growth that exists in all of us and we often ignore our intuition and resist the changes we may need to make. We all have a certain wisdom about our lives, so I see my job as one of helping you work towards insight and understanding of your issues and then arming you with new tools to overcome the challenges. I provide a non-judgmental, genuinely warm and supportive setting for you to begin the process of changing what is not working in your life, your relationships or your work. My direct approach and easy-going style creates an atmosphere of safety where you can speak freely, without censoring yourself. I have a deep respect for how vulnerable you might feel having taken the step to seek help and therefore I am very conscious of letting you set the pace of our work together.
